April 22nd 2018 Launch Date
To celebrate the launch of the ‘Sheffield: The Home of Football’ walking app the Sheffield Library service have organised a special day on Sunday 22ndApril when Sheffielders are invited to do the walk accompanied by home football club historians.
The vicar of Heeley Parish Church and Geoffrey Norton, who is a descendant of Nathaniel Creswick will say a few words before the walk commences.
The day starts from mid-day and will break at the Town Hall when the Lord Mayor will be distributing half-time oranges! The walk finishes at Highfield Library where free tea and cakes will be provided, and more Sheffield football history questions can be answered.
To help manage the event Sheffield Library are asking people to register their intention to participate in the ‘Sheffield: The Home of Football’ walk. Please click on the Eventbrite image below to register you interest.
It is important to register your interest at the above website so that we can manage the demand to ensure your day runs smoothly.
Everyone attending will be asked to wear their favourite club colours; every person has their favourite team, but this app celebrates the amazing overall contribution that all the Sheffield clubs have given to the game of football, that has made Sheffield the Home of Football.
There is a Facebook Group set up to support the app and the launch walk; just search for Sheffield the Home of Football once you have logged in to Facebook. Or click on this Facebook link..
